My name is Gerardo San Diego, and I’m a content creator, web architect, designer, artist, geek consultant, vlogger, and amateur photographer. I’ve been a freelance consultant for over twenty years, specializing in coordinating, developing and implementing digital assets to create an optimized visual narrative. Basically, I take your stuff and make it more understandable to others. I also write.
Why is the website named Airgun Diaries?
I read an article that said the Dalai Lama sometimes shoots his air rifle at hawks to scare them away from smaller birds. Here’s the link and snippet to the article:
Q: I once read that as a little boy in Lhasa, you liked war toys.
A: Yes, very much. I also had an air rifle in Lhasa. And I have one in India. I often feed small birds, but when they come together, hawks spot them and catch them — a very bad thing. So in order to protect these small birds, I keep the air rifle.
Q: So it is a Buddhist rifle?
A: [ Laughs ] A compassionate rifle!
. . .
I also believe that the mouth is a gun, using air to throw words out, to say something. So that’s a second meaning to Airgun Diaries:)
